Bitti Mohanty’s family hell bent on saving their spoilt rapist son from the law
The family of the tall swaggering son (Bitti) of the DGP of police ( BB Mohanty) actually sympathises with their son and believes him to be a victim. They also believe that he has done nothing wrong. And his sister has gone on live television with this claim!
First, the rapist’s father helps his son get parole and then spirits him away! Bitti was convicted to seven years in jail for raping a German tourist in Alwar last year and it was at the behest of the father that the Rajasthan government allowed Bitti parole (TOI report) from Nov 20 to December 4. Apparently the father (a very senior IPS officer from Orissa) signed the bail bond and made the plea that Bitti needed to meet his ailing mother. He also gave a surety of Rs 50,000/- and sent more than 50 faxes requesting for parole for his son!
Case filed against BB Mohanty
The Rajasthan police have now filed a case against BB Mohanty (yahoo article) as they suspect him of being aware of his son’s whereabouts.
A sister’s sympathy
Knowing that Bitti’s family is hell bent on protecting him I wasn’t too shocked when I heard what Bitti’s sister had to say on CNN-IBN. She seemed very well educated from her accent and spoke in fluent English. This is the gist of what she said:
“My brother had consensual sex with the German girl, that’s what he has told us. She was a woman he was very much in love with (she said this twice). The media should treat him with sympathy. He has suffered a great deal in prison after being thrown together with hardened criminals. He is not coming home now because he knows that his father will force him to surrender. My father has had 30 years of meritorious service in the police force and now he has to suffer this! If my brother knows what his father is going through, he could commit suicide. He is suffering from great mental strain because of his time in prison and needs treatment from a psychiatrist. We are afraid that he might commit suicide if he comes to know what his father is suffering.”
These words show that she and her family believe that if Bitti was hanging out with the German girl and “in love” with her, then he had the right to force himself on her! It is also clear that she wants Bitti to be protected from life in a jail and never mind if he has committed rape.
Also looks like Bitti was brought up to believe that women who are willing to go out with men deserve to be raped. Sometimes women themselves perpetuate this myth.
Thankfully, news channels are covering this story in detail and due to pressure from the media it is likely that Bitti will be forced by his father to surrender.
15th Jan: Latest reports say that the Rajasthan police was hand in glove with Bitti Mohanty’s family. Actually by law he was not entitled to parole as he had just been convicted…but the police still gave him parole. There are also reports which say that some sort of psychiatric report is being prepared and once this is ready Bitti will come out hiding.
21st Jan: A show-case notice has been issued to BB Mohanty for his role in his son’s disappearance by the Rajasthan police.
